Telepresence for the Rest of Us

by VoipPlanet.com Staff

As vendors continue to shave down prices—and new systems enter the market—this once-prohibitive technology is becoming available to all.

"Telepresence is an application to die for, but the cost of telepresence rooms and of the network limits usage to large corporations. But increasingly, vendors are coming out with low-cost, high-quality solutions for the SMB price bracket," writes Bob Emerson on NoJitter.com.

"One such example is from Vidyo, which has introduced a telepresence room system that supports two video streams at 60 frames/second and the price is just under $7K. To that you have to add the cost of one or two monitors. A 'traditional' telepresence solution would have more monitors plus a fancy environment and the price would start at around $100K," Emerson writes.
